REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT


The PRESIDENT,
The White House.
Smn: On Augait 19, 1933. you approved a Codle of Fair Competi-
tion for the Lumber and Timber Products Industries.
This is a report on a Henring on Amen:lment No. 46 to that
Code conducted in the Fairfax Room of the Willard Hotel, Wash-
inrti.,i. D.C.. on February 13, 1734. The Aiiwndlment contemplates
the e.-tabli-iinent of a Pole and Piling Division of the Lubiiier and
Timber Products Code and was prr-esented by representatives of the
industry of which the contemplated Division will have jurisdiction,
said to repre<'nt. more than sixty (60' ) percent of the value of such
products manufactured and distributed in the United States.
In 1929 approximately five thousand workers were engaged in
the Pole and Piling Indu-try and the sales for that year were
estimated at 4.5t;.5..S9 poles and 25.324,255 linear feet of piling.
The estimated demand for poles is 3,500,000. Accurate informa-
tion coln'lning the miiinium wages now paid in the industry is
iiava:il;blle. but the evidence indicates that the I!iinimuum Ywage
scales have been decrea-ed to a level insufifiicnt to maintain decent
.iari'l:rds of living. The Amendment correlates the wacgs and hour
provi-ionl. of those employed in the Pole and Piling Indus.try with
those who are engaged in similar occupati ri.O now under the juris-
dictioii of the Lumber and Timber Products (Coe. The Adminis-
trative Age,.-ie-, for this Division are or;ganizid1 in wscco1rdance with
g,"igra;lphical and species divisions.
The Deputy Administrator in his final report to me on said
Amendment to said Code having found as herein set forth and on
the basis of all the prwreedings in this matter;
I filnd that:
(a) The Amendment to said Code and the Code as amentiled are
well dlf-igil'd to promote the policies and purposes of Title I of the
National Industrial Recovery Act including the removal of obstruc-
tions to the free flow of iiterstate and foreign commerce which tend
to diminish the am oulnt thereof, and will provide for the g.,iiral wel-
fare by promoting the organiz:t ion of industry for the purpose of
cooperative action a;onlg trade gro1,up., lIy inducing and mainaitai ing
united action of labor :ind mannagenment under adequate governmental
sanction irand supervisi, 1. by el iiiiiti ili ng i fir competitive practices,
by prn,,, it in the fullest possible iut i Iiza t ion of the present productive
capacity oi indu- rii,., by avoiiin undue restrictions of production
(ex, ,pptas iryi be teilpornirily requlire-1), by increa-ing the i'unIilmlp-
tion of indiu-triial and aLricultural products thriiizh in.';r.a-iliig pur-
c.h:-i;l i;Ipower, by reducirini and relieving ; ,.,iiplotn-lilet. by improv-
iiig standards of labor, and by otherwise rehabilitating i,;du-tr;y.









(b) The Code ais amended complies in all respects with the per-
tinent provisions of said Title of said Act. including without limita-
tion Subsection (a) of Sectiotn 3, Subsection (a) of Section 7 and
Subsection (b) of Section 10 thereof.
(c) The Code empowers the Code Authority to present the afore-
said Amendment on behalf (if the industry as a whole.
(d) The Amendment and the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not permit monpolies or monopolistic practices.
(e) The Amendment ;nd the Code as amended are not designed
to and will not eliminate or oppress small enterprises and will not
operate to discriminate against them.
(f) Those engaged in other steps of the economic process have not
been deprived of the right to be heard prior to approval of said
Amendment.
For these reasons, therefore, I have approved this Amendment to
the Code.
Respectfully,
HUGH S. JOHNSON,
Administrator.
